The kitchenette had a small toaster oven with 2 elements on top, a microwave oven, toaster and kettle, plus a sink for washing up. The heater in the room worked well and it was on when I got there, so the room was warm on arrival.

It was clean and tidy. Heating was already turned on when we arrived as it was only 11 degrees.

Liked: Location, Coded doors, kitchen facilities, modern fit out and comfortable bed. Issues: water gets out of the shower area and makes the bathroom floor slip but also wets the carpet. No tissues
